Billie Sue, Donna, Russell- I am so sorry to hear about your mom and sorry that I am unable to attend in person. I think Billie Sue and I had discussed at some time that she just might outlast all of us. Maybe she almost did! Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers as you reflect on your family while honoring your mother. A flood of happy Mulberry memories are flowing through my mind of our family’s friendship. Billie Sue, I will call you soon.
Love, Martha Ellen
Donna, I have a lot of good memories at your house spending the night and eating Sue’s good cooking. I saw her at the nursing home a few yrs ago and she liked telling me about where you were and your family.
Donna, I am so sorry about your mom. Have a lot of good memories at your house. Sue was such a good cook and I remember her cooking spaghetti and having our teacher over for dinner. Special memories of spending the night .
Many years had passed since I had the pleasure of seeing Ms. Sue but ran into her a year ago when we were both patients at Donalson Skilled Care. At that time I had the pleasure of meeting a very devoted son who came for a visit everyday. Back in the fifties and sixties I knew Ms. Sue and always loved how she wore her hair on top of her head and was always so neat and attractive. I knew she was married to Mr. Billy , that they lived in Mulberry, and had the used car business, Just had to let you know that I send my deepest sympathy and congratulations on her long and full life. May she rest in her heavenly home.
Russell & family, we are so sorry to hear of Mrs Sue’s passing. She always had a big smile when she seen you. We enjoyed her. You all are in our thoughts & prayers. Mr Willie C & Mrs Willow Deen McGehee, Billy McGehee, Mary & Teresa Partin
I remember Mrs Sue and Mr Billy from when I was a kid growing up in Booneville. Sweet people. My thoughts and prayers are with the family
